The Saddlers brushed aside their Midlands neighbours 4-0 in front of a packed Banks's Stadium on Easter Monday to extend their unbeaten run to 12 games and move to within three points of the play-off places.

Fourth-placed Sheffield United, who are just four points ahead in the table, are the visitors on Saturday in what is promising to be a crunch promotion clash and Westcarr, who bagged a brace to help see off the Sky Blues, insists belief is a fixture within the Walsall dressing room.

"Games like this (versus Coventry) in front of a big crowd and with a great atmosphere are always good and we're expecting more of the same against Sheffield United on Saturday," the forward told the club's official website. "Hopefully our fans will turn up in good numbers again and really get behind us.

"The belief is there, we've always stuck to what we're doing and now we'll take each game as it comes between now and the end of the season and see where it takes us.

"At this stage of the season every game is tough, be it against Sheffield United who are up there challenging for promotion or Scunthorpe, who we face the following week, who are battling for their lives near the bottom.

"If we can play to our ability then I would back us to beat anyone in this league.

"You can be sure that we'll be focused and prepared to work hard in order to keep getting our rewards."

terling needs to be told though that upon entering the Arsenal squad he will re-enact the final scene from Highlander where he will be thrown around a warehouse by cartoon dragons and then be a mere mortal that will only ever spend three to four weeks a season playing football and the rest on the physio's bed. There can be only one.....player available at The Emirates.

Arsenal interest in Sterling

he game changed in our favour when Carrick came on. We were able to play further up the pitch due to having a player who can give and go with the ball and keep possession. Yet barkley made some runs and Townsend scored a good goal but carrick's inclusion and chiellini's withdrawal made the biggest difference to the flow of the game

o, you've not silenced anyone Andros, i'm afraid. We know you can score a great goal, and it's really handy to have your direct running and willingness to shoot on the bench. But until you can do the other things expected of a winger (beat the man, put a decent cross in, stay wide etc) then you can't expect more than a regular cameo. Wonderful goal though, what a hit! No wonder Buffon wanted the shirt.
